Officials struggling to identify virus as people report developing lesions seen in horses - Australian Broadcasting Corporation | The Jurga Report: Horse Health, Welfare, and Care | Scoop.it

"The Western Australia Health Department is playing down fears a mystery horse virus has been contracted by humans and a vet treating the horses says nobody should be alarmed.


"At least 18 horses on four properties in the Swan Valley and South West have developed small solid lumps on their mouths.


"People who have had contact with the horses have also reported they have developed similar lesions in their mouths."

@FranJurga writes: This is a classic "please don't be alarmed, but..." story. Two weeks ago, an ABC report detailed the mysterious symptoms in the horses and said there was no danger of it being contagious to humans. But what is it? This is a story worth following!

Kentucky State Veterinarian Office Keeps an Eye (and writes a report) on EHV-1 in Florida -- Kentucky Horse Council

Kentucky State Veterinarian Office Keeps an Eye (and writes a report) on EHV-1 in Florida -- Kentucky Horse Council | The Jurga Report: Horse Health, Welfare, and Care | Scoop.it

@FranJurga writes: The Kentucky Horse Council has shared a report from Rusty Ford in the Kentucky State Veterinarian's office on the details of the EHV situation in Florida.


Kentucky is being diligent about the Florida cases out of respect for the large number of horses in that state, and also because so many of the horses affected by the outbreak in Florida will break camp at the end of March...and the Kentucky Horse Park shows and other events or destinations in the state may be their next stop.
